What type of guarantee is EcoCareTM?
- EcoCare™ is a multifaceted guarantee.
- First, the guarantee ensures regulatory compliance with IMO, USCG and individual U.S. state standards now and throughout the life of the system.
- Secondly, the guarantee addresses system efficacy as it pertains to treating ballast water for invasive species contamination.
- Lastly, the guarantee insures against financial penalties up to $1,000,000* relating to fines, port charges, delays and off-hire.
Why is chlorine dioxide the best solution?
- Chlorine dioxide is a proven technology and has been in use for industrial and municipal water treatment around the globe for more than 70 years and is highly effective in killing invasive species and other organic organisms.
- The Ecochlor BWMS system uses a patented, two-step treatment process that includes filtration and chlorine dioxide injection which has been fortified for marine use.
- Our technology does not require retreatment or a neutralization process during de-ballasting, making the system well-suited for all vessels, especially those with topside ballast tanks.
How do you/we know the system is performing properly and eliminating invasive species?
- When operated per system specifications, our BWMS will meet, and in most cases exceed, the invasive species standards set by the IMO, USCG and individual U.S. states.
- Ecochlor proactively tracks all ballasting operations with results reported via a Functional Monitoring Data Sheet (FMDS) and other remote monitoring tools.
- We maintain a 24/7 international call center for when crews and operators need to reach out to us for support.
How much does the EcoCareTM guarantee cost the client?
- The EcoCare™ guarantee costs the client nothing!
- EcoCare™ is provided to all clients who purchase an Ecochlor BWMS.
- It signifies our commitment to our clients, confidence in our technology and willingness to support our clients’ operations now and in the future.
